History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 2003 Detroit Tigers threatened to break the 1962 New York Mets' record for most losses in a season since 1900. However, a late-season push helped them to fall one loss, short, at 119. They still had the distinction of having in Mike Maroth the first twenty-game loser in the major leagues since Brian Kingman of the 1980 Oakland Athletics.
